Praying for Japan: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - July 27

Today we conclude our prayer time for Japan. Please review pages 488-494.

My prayer for today: Lord, we pray for the aged in Japan. We pray for the economic realities of  aging and for the younger generation to truly honor and love the elder, desiring to take care of them with Your heart. We pray for spiritual openness by the older Japanese and for Christians to work in nursing homes, hospitals, and hospices to share Your love and hope to those at the end of their lives. We pray for the church in Japan to be in unity and to recognize the validity of differing approaches. We pray You will call out men to follow You and to lead congregations. We pray for the Japanese church to have a strong and significant impact on society. Give the churches missions vision and understanding of the challenges they face. Fulfill Your call for Japan. In Jesus' name, amen.
